"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Huevos Rancheros is one of my all-time favorite breakfasts. You can add refried beans to the tortilla and top with the egg, for a heartier version. Some people like to add Jalapenos or Serrano chiles on top for a little extra heat.

This is also a great brunch dish, served with a spicy Bloody Mary.
